The Ford F-150 is one of the best-selling vehicles in America — not that this is news to anyone. F-150 fans have loved the addition of the Raptor package to the popular pickup truck for its aggressive styling and additional features, and with the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor, there is still more to it than meets the eye.
The 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor
The 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor is one of the most capable versions of the pickup truck that you can buy — and it makes its aggressive nature known with an upgraded exterior package. The 2020 model year has a starting price of around $53,455 and boasts as much as 450 hp, and we expect about the same from the 2021 model year Ford.
F-150 Easter eggs
The 2021 Ford F-150 has some hidden Easter eggs that some owners might not be aware of — but luckily, Ford has given us some points. All of them are pretty noticeable once they are pointed out, too, and you may have even noticed a few without realizing what each meant.
On the rear fender, you can find an FP GN03 logo with a QR code, which you can quickly and easily scan with your phone. If you’re looking at it from a distance, you may not notice it, but up close, you can see a small QR code in the top corner of the P. When you scan the QR code, it will take you to the official Ford Performance website. Of course, you can still navigate there on your own without the QR code, but it’s still a neat addition.
Even more Easter eggs
There is more to the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor than a measly QR code. Option for the Raptor Graphics Package to get some fighter-jet inspiration on your rear fender. The diamond gradient pattern sliding smoothly away from the Raptor logo on the rear fender was designed to resemble the nozzle afterburners from F-22 Raptor and U.S. fighter jet trails like the American flag.
The last Easter egg that Ford has revealed is the nod to desert racing heritage, which, you could probably guess, is also found on the rear fender — we are starting to see a trend here. This hidden Easter egg is found on the 2021 Ford F-150 with the optional 37-inch tire package. A representative map of the Baja 1000 race is easy to find, but you probably wouldn’t recognize it if you didn’t know much about Baja racing.
